Conflict of Intrest

Hope is nativity
Beauty is vanity
Patience is sloth
Humor is disdain
Passion is impulse
Tactful is lackluster
Youth is ignorance
Compassion is guilt
Courage is stupidity
Honesty is rudeness
Generosity is charity
Curiosity is nosiness
Modesty is prudence
Fairness is indecision
Imaginative is childish
Flexibility is disrespect
Loyalty is dependence
Reliability is predictable
Intelligence is arrogance
Determination is obsession
Morality is self-righteousness
Stubbornness is perseverance
And
Balance is important

Congratulations on completing a manuscript. The Colorado Review is a powerful choice. As for this poem: a perfect grocery list of phrases that we should eat and digest—bravo!

Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
